We report theoretical investigations on some [Ring]Li--(+) compounds, which can exhibit a through ring umbrella like inversion. Our studies predict cyclononatetraenyllithium to be molecular rattle, in which such inversions can occur. The potential energy for the motion is a double well, with an activation barrier of 11.50 kcal/mol. We find that the lithium should go through the ring easily by an excitation to nu = 17 vibrational level. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
